    Cretaceous Sea

Location: Central Lightwell

During the age of the dinosaurs 82 million years ago, Nebraska was covered with a great inland sea. One of the most feared creatures in that sea was the Tylosaurus, the largest mosasaur and dominant predator in the sea during the cretaceous period.

The Cretaceous Sea exhibit at Hastings Museum features a 30-foot life-sized sculpture of a Tylosaurus, as well as a 17-foot replica of a Xiphactinus, a prehistoric fish.
